Large N Field Theories, String Theory and Gravity
We review the holographic correspondence between field theories and string/M theory, focusing on the relation between compactifications of string/M theory on Anti-de Sitter spaces and conformal fieldExpand

The D4–D8 brane system and five dimensional fixed points
Abstract We construct dual Type I' string descriptions to five dimensional supersymmetric fixed points with E N f +1 global symmetry. The background is obtained as the near horizon geometry of theExpand

D-branes on Calabi-Yau spaces and their mirrors
We study the boundary states of D-branes wrapped around supersymmetric cycles in a general Calabi-Yau manifold. In particular, we show how the geometric data on the cycles are encoded in the boundaryExpand

Dynamics of N=2 supersymmetric gauge theories in three-dimensions
We study the structure of the moduli spaces of vacua and superpotentials of N = 2 supersymmetric gauge theories in three dimensions. By analyzing the instanton corrections, we compute the exactExpand

Strong coupling dynamics of four-dimensional $N = 1$ gauge theories from M-theory fivebrane
It has been known that the fivebrane of type IIA theory can be used to give an exact low energy description of N=2 supersymmetric gauge theories in four dimensions. We follow the recent M theoryExpand

Supergravity and large N noncommutative field theories
We consider systems of Dp-branes in the presence of a nonzero B field. We study the corresponding supergravity solutions in the limit where the branes worldvolume theories decouple from gravity.Expand

Supersymmetric cycles in exceptional holonomy manifolds and Calabi-Yau four-folds
We derive in the SCFT and low energy effective action frameworks the necessary and sufficient conditions for supersymmetric cycles in exceptional holonomy manifolds and Calabi-Yau four-folds. We showExpand

Supergravity description of non-Bogomol'nyi-Prasad-Sommerfield branes
We construct supergravity solutions that correspond to N Dp-branes coinciding with N Dp-branes. We study the physical properties of the solutions and analyse the supergravity description of tachyonExpand

Supergravity Description of Non-BPS Branes
We construct supergravity solutions that correspond to N Dp-branes coinciding with N Dp-branes. We study the physical properties of the solutions and analyse the supergravity description of tachyonExpand

Relativistic hydrodynamics with general anomalous charges
We consider the hydrodynamic regime of gauge theories with general triangle anomalies, where the participating currents may be global or gauged, abelian or non-abelian. We generalize the argument ofExpand
